Kearney, Mat - On And On Lyrics




If tonight is your last train out of here
How you gonna run like that? How you gonna run like that?
If this one life, one love left here to share
How you gonna turn your back? How you gonna turn your back?

And I don't care if everyone knows what we're going through
'Cause all the roads lead back to you

On and on and on we pray, we can break into a brighter day
Nothing worth anything ever goes down easy
On and on and on we go, I don't understand this windy road
Nothing worth anything ever goes down easy

If there's one thing that I need to hear from you
Is how we gonna see this through, how we gonna see this through
If there's one thing that I know to be true
Is that I'm in love with you, is that I'm in love with you

And I don't care if everyone knows what we're going through
'Cause all the roads lead back to you

On and on and on we pray, we can break into a brighter day
Nothing worth anything ever goes down easy
On and on and on we go, I don't understand this windy road
Nothing worth anything ever goes down easy

And we'll keep on, keep on climbing on down this narrow line
So we can see the other side, the other side

On and on and on we pray, we can break into a brighter day
Nothing worth anything ever goes down easy
On and on and on we go, I don't understand this windy road
Nothing worth anything ever goes down easy, goes down easy
Goes down easy, goes down easy, goes down easy

    I just saw the Today segment about the girl who recorded this song for her mom before she died... this song is really beautiful... 😢

  5. Terrible Person From Louisiana

    if anything, this song has brought up thoughts, emotions, feelings, etc that i have not thought of in a while

  6. Amber Gilman

    I listen to his music all day at work at the office. It's keeps me focused and happy.

  7. LemonStain

    My go-to artist for any mood. I can listen to him all day everyday. Only artist I can put a song on repeat and not get sick of it.

  8. Christian Marcial

    great song...

  9. Klejdi Guria

    Ridiculous.. its like a spreading disease, every gap between songs is an advertisement... Can you listen to some music in peace nowadays???

    Saint David

    I know it sounds crazy but they have these things you can buy with no advertisements and you can play them anywhere ;) #album

  10. Neida Camacho

    Isn't he just amazing

    Jon C Wolf

    Yes! I agree, He is amazing! His lyrics are poetic and his melodies are beyond compare! My son calls his music Hillbilly Rap. Sounds like an insult but it is a compliment. Mat Kearney makes poetry melodic, it is more than just rhyming lyrics, he tells a story!!! How many song writers have ever been able to do that???!! Thanks for your comment!!!

  11. Cedrick Bryant

    I love this song :)

  12. Myungwoo Lee

    it sounds like.... the chords for "scientist" by Coldplay. Except it's either half key down or full key. which is...

    Capo on third fret (all chords capo relative)

    Bm7 (020202), G(320033), D(000232), D2(000320)

    Then probably throw in like A Chord (002220) or something like that.

    large bakedbean

    Myungwoo Lee true. He does Re-use a lot of tunes. The opening sounded like city of black and white

  13. Adam Sharp

    They play this song over the radio at my store

  14. Hootshot112

    When I saw "on and on" I thought of the song "Days go on" by Greg Laswell. Also a really good song.

  15. dave spencer

    makes me think of the love of my life the one that got away

  16. Doubleinfinity101

    I love Mat Kearney, he impacts my life like no other artist he just is amazing :)

  34. La Trice

    @RISC09 the "13 (bend), 9" is on the b string

  35. La Trice

    If you're playing these chords below the guitar is in standard btw!

  36. La Trice

    If anyone is looking to play this beautiful but are unsure of the chords, look no further! If you have time you should give it a go:
    Intro: x46600, 002200, 022100, x24400
    Verse: (Same as Intro)
    Pre-Chorus: x46600,x24400, 002200
    Chorus: 022100, 002200, x46600, 002200
    Bridge:002200, x24400, x46600...002200, 022100
    Outro:022100, 002200, x46600, x24400...13b, 9
    Whew! enjoy!

  37. La Trice

    @Mdoe85 I know it's been a year but I believe that these chords are 99% correct. If you have time you should give it a go:
    Intro: x46600, 002200, 022100, x24400
    Verse: (Same as Intro)
    Pre-Chorus: x46600,x24400, 002200
    Chorus: 022100, 002200, x46600, 002200
    Bridge:002200, x24400, x46600...002200, 022100
    Outro:022100, 002200, x46600, x24400...13b, 9
    Whew! enjoy!

  38. Katherine Ryan

    he's like coldplay meets dave matthews meets matt nathanson

  39. Nick Ward

    why doesnt he ever do anything with coldplay, him and chris martin sound eerily the same

  40. Michal_h92

    Nice! :)

  41. BasicMusicRecords

    Man, every time i hear another song from Mat Kearney, it reaffirms that he is my FAVE male singer right now. Just so amazing, awesome voice and meaningul heartfelt, relateable lyrics!

  42. AmandaK531

    Just beautiful. <3

  43. dvsteady

    This song reminds me of someone...

  44. Gil O'Castle

    the beginning sounds like "nothing left to lose"

  45. Marcus James

    does anyone know FOR SURE the chords used in this song?...I have looked everywhere and have had no luck!

  46. Matt Werner

    Just saw him live this weekend and he plays alot of these same chords in many of the songs. He plays most of the songs in standard tuning. In case anyone wanted to know! He's great to see if you can see him live.

  47. Matt Werner

    I stand corrected, but could use some help. I think he goes Emin to 024400, 046600 and back to 024400 in the verse. Not sure chorus exactly.

  48. Matt Werner

    For guitar players out here: what tuning is this, because it def doesn't sound standard. Any ideas?
